Interested in Survival Gear?
Welcome to our guide to the best survival gear planning and reviews. With so much to choose from out there it can be hard to decide just what you need to make it through those hard times. From finding the best multi tool to putting together your bug out bag, you will find what you need to get started and expand your preps right here!
Don’t forget to read up what clothing and footwear you need to consider to get through in your unique climate and be sure to brush up on the current offerings of personal water filters out there that can provide thousands of gallons of lifesaving water for you and your family.
Tools & Weapons
Having the right tools and also being prepared to defend yourself and your family are important. From the best multi tool to picking out a non lethal weapon, you will find something to suit your situation in these posts.
Fire & Cooking
Not everyone is used to cooking very often or even having to get a fire going. Our guide to rocket stoves and our post on firestarters is a good way to get started.
Clothing & Footwear
Just because clothing and footwear is plentiful now doesn’t mean it will be in a long emergency. Having the right clothing for your climate and for different seasons is crucial regardless if you are planning on staying in place or bugging out.
General & Misc
A lightweight and portable filter is something everyone should have. Our guides can help you find the right ones.
Bug Out & EDC Bags
Creating a bug out bag is one of the first things a lot of preppers do. There are a lot of pre put together options you can buy to get started and then add on to or you can budget a little at a time and build your own custom bag.
We can also show you how to put together an every day carry bag that can help out if you find yourself in a situation on your commute, at work, or running errands.
Gas Masks & Biological Defense
Do you have a gas mask? If not you should consider having at least a breathing mask for protection against airborne pathogens and biological weapons. Our guide to the best gas masks offers a lot of approachable options.
Thank you for stopping by!
